The hotel is excellent, fantastic accommodation, always clean, organized, spacious, beautiful bungalows, cleaned linen, friendly staff overall, varied activities for those who do not like to be standing still. It has 2 very good swimming pools and a private beach guarded by security guards, so that locals do not bother with... More

This is a beautiful place to stay, well-designed and comfortable. The dining room and main pool area are right by the beach with beautiful views. The food is very nice. The rooms are in separate "cabins" and are nice - but could be improved by having separate areas for children rather than having all beds in one open area. They... More

We visited the Decameron Baobab resort as a family holiday and travelled with a 2- and 5-year old. After landing in Dakar airport, we had a 2 hour shuttle service to the hotel. The highway towards the resort was only partially finished so the last part of the journey took us already through small villages and past marvellous baobab trees.... More

I've stayed at this place numerous times and though lovely, the customer service is absolutely horrible. I had reservations confirmed and then called back to verify days prior only to find out that they were overbooked and I was on a waitlist. This happened to more multiple times and therefore I will not return.

We just spent 2 weeks in this resort, overall enjoyed it very much. It is very well planned as it has a nice quiet pool area, away from the animation junk. The gardens, everything is well kept, the food was great. However if you travel with children and hope to have something to do for your children from the program... More
